  1. First switch off your phone and remove the SIM card tray.
    • First switch off your phone and remove the SIM card tray.

    • Unscrew the two Pentalobe P2 screws located at the bottom next to the device's USB C port.

    • If the screen is cracked you might want to use some tape to protect your eyes from glass shreds and get a better grip to open the phone.

  2. Use an iSclack or a suction handle to separate the display unit from the rear panel.
    • Use an iSclack or a suction handle to separate the display unit from the rear panel.

      • Don't remove the rear panel completely yet. There is a cable connected to it! It is running from the finger print sensor to the display unit.

    If you cant get suction because of cracks in the screen, use wide tape to create smooth surface.

    If your screen is smashed, and nothing else will work (iSclack etc), you can get a thin blade between the casing and the screen assembly and the bottom. The screen assembly can then be pried out. I fought with mine before discovering this. Be careful of the broken glass.

    I struggled to remove screen with suction cups due to damage to the back case. I used a jim to pry from bottom by usb c port, worked well.

    Be very carrefull as it can open in one fell swoop !

    On my model, I had 2 Little torx screws beside the USB port. If so, the screen won’t come out with them on.

    Interesting, sure those were 6-starred (Torx) and not 5-starred (Pentalobe) like mentioned in step 1?

    • Disconnect the flex cable and remove the headphone jack.

    • The old headphone jack is equipped with a rubber seal, which holds the jack down to the phone. Take it off and put it on the new headphone jack.
